The Google-launched 'Latino Cultures' is a new online library resource, which is bringing thousands of cultural artifacts together, offering consumers an engaging platform to learn about and understand the Latino experience in American.

The platform is comprised of over 2,500 Latino cultural artifacts, and provides an engaging experience through offering "immersive storytelling, 360-degree virtual tours, ultra-high-resolution imagery, and visual field trips." The collection aims to spotlight the tremendous influence of Latino culture on the United States and includes "Voces Oral History Project’s interviews with Latinos and Latinas of the World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War generations."

By comprising both Spanish-speaking and Latino-centered content, the newly launched Latino Cultures program hopes to reshape online resources by introducing more diversified and inclusive content.
